Surgery Procedures

Temple Heights Animal Hospital takes great care prior to, during and after pet surgical procedures. We view every surgical procedure as a major operation, from the more common spay to the complicated orthopedic case.

Surgery is preformed only after an exam, pre-anesthetic blood panel, and anesthesia evaluation. Pain management is a priority in our surgical cases. We help your pet safely recover from surgery with comprehensive pain management, careful nursing care by our trained staff, special diets, and most importantly, gentle individualized attention and encouragement.

Dr. Valdez remains current in the most recent advances in anesthesia and surgery by attending continuing education courses on a regular basis.
